back in the day many of the local stations would show a marathon or such of various 3 Stooges movies. Throw in some Marx Bros and Abbot and Costello for some good measure.

In this age of instant gratification, what should I dial up for the family?


this perhaps???

laugh Pretty sure Duck Soup is also available; all the humor without all the shrill caterwauling of Opera. My personal fave Marx Bros movie is Animal Crackers; as a musician, the "Chico-can't find-the-song's-end" bit kills me every time. laugh

duck Soup FTW.

If you have Netfix Streaming they have a bunch of bunch of Buster Keaton available. The General and Sherlock Jr. are probably the best.

You can't go wrong with the brothers Marx. Don't forget Horsefeathers, A Day at the Races, and Monkey Business.

If you like goofy Marxist humor you should check out a movie called Brain Donors, an homage from the late 80s. It's the best Marx Bros film without the Marx Bros actually in it.

I think the worst thing about being a crime boss would be having to write performance reviews for all of those career criminals.

I think that all right-thinking people in this country are sick and tired of being told that ordinary, decent people are fed up in this country with being sick and tired. I’m certainly not, and I’m sick and tired of being told that I am.

We ended up having a Big Bang Theory marathon, watching season 6 to try to get caught up. We'd seen the first four seasons (borrowed from my SIL) and my wife borrowed seasons 5 and 6 from a co-worker a few weeks ago. We wanted to finish them so we could return them.

After BBT we watched "Sherlock Jr." by Buster Keaton on YouTube, then followed that with several episodes of the vlog brothers and Mental Floss videos.

We finally switched to TV and the Times Square countdown about 4 minutes to the drop. Really poor camera work on the Fox network -- I guess the good folks were all off for the holiday and these were the 3rd-stringers.
